Word of encouragement to the plus size brides about their dresses!

I just want to say a quick thing to my fellow plus size/curvy brides who are terrified about going dress shopping or agonizing over the small stuff... Don't! You are beautiful! You are wonderful! And everyone will admire your beauty on your wedding day.

Going dress shopping for my wedding dress has kind of transformed me. I used to hate clothes shopping... But when I tried on wedding gowns and saw that so many were beautiful on me a switch inside must have turned on. Now I feel empowered to love myself and tell myself I'm beautiful. Ive volunteered in several occasions to be the bridesmaid dress model for my friends weddings. (And even purchased two bridesmaid gowns for some upcoming formal events happily) In fact I'm bummed that I have my dress already because I want to go shopping more.

So please don't fret, agonize, worry or anything. Have an open mind and try things you wouldn't normally like or wear. You'll be pleasently surprised to find your beautiful! And you will wow everyone on your wedding day. I can't wait to show everyone the woman I've become in my beautiful gown!!

I wear a size 22 and somehow my dress ended up being an 18w!! I was so shocked! So you never know! Just remember love you and tell yourself your beautiful! And all of this is coming from a girl with horrible self esteem problems!

Very well put!!


We all have body issues, I don't care what size you are. Learning to see your own beauty is one of the greatest things we can do for ourselves and this is definitely a fantastic reminder.


You are getting married - you have someone who loves you very much and that is what counts!! Size IS just a number.

Exactly. It's just a number and obviously the man your marring doesn't care about that number or he wouldn't be marrying you. :P
